The band's 2007 Remedy Club Tour of the USA boasted 19 sold out dates and now this CD/DVD package is a tremendous memento, offering a full 85-minute concert recorded at tour stops in New York City and Atlanta. David and his tremendous band primarily perform the material from the 'Remedy' album interspersed with a couple of oldies. It's a shame therefore that they couldn't have found space for the unit's stirring cover of the hymn "O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing". Fan favourites like "O Praise Him (All This For A King)" are augmented by older songs and the atmosphere throughout is of unconcealed joy. Crowder's zany introduction to Jack Parker's banjo during the old bluegrass hoedown "I Saw The Light" is hilarious (how often do you get a good belly laugh in the middle of a worship set?) while the technical quality (nine cameras and 5.1 surround sound) is of the highest order. The package also contains a 50-minute documentary, On The Road With David Crowder Band, as well as a Learning The Songs section hosted by each band member showing their set up and gear used in each song followed by a How To Play lesson. All in all, one of the finest worship packages I've ever encountered.
